Quinn is a 14-year-old Toronto based singer/songwriter. At 14, I could barely pluck up the courage to talk to someone of the opposite sex, so creating and releasing an album at such a tender age is some feat in itself.
Quinn has impressive knowledge of design and is able to produce exquisite music, as well as melancholic visuals. His six-track album Candy, Again sees Quinn flourish through dreamy vocals and beats and synth effects, all united with a strong sense of hopelessness. In terms of the genre Quinn’s album can be characterized as dream-pop or soft-rock with touches of electronic. But there is way much more to this artist, and such the versatility of the artist’s musicality, you can quite easily vision his songs transformed into orchestral or hip hop remixes.
The opening track "Cape Cod" has a Lana Del Rey allure and grandiose nature to it that really portrays Quinn's unshakable confidence. While "See you" deals with the frustration of lack of human interaction during the pandemic. "Resilence" is an amazingly inspirational song to help guide us through these tough times and spreads positivity for the future. With heavy Arlo Park and Billie Eilish vibes. Quinn has an interestingly concurrent voice with an idiosyncratic, heavily distorted vocal style that combines fittingly with his take on playful and innocent angst. As well as serving as a welcome reminder of how amorphous modern pop has become.
Candy, Again is a quintessential contemporary album dealing with the difficulties that modern life holds. There is a sentimental reflection of life pre-covid, which any human being can connect with. Such deep emotions from the pandemic are explored throughout from isolation to optimism.
Quinn is an artist that can guide you into his world, a world crammed with poignant happiness and adamant wholesome emotions. I look forward to seeing what direction this talented young singer/songwriter takes as he develops his sound.
